Reviews of AB in Philosophy graduates:

M. D.
◈ Studied BA Philosophy
◈ At University of the Philippines Diliman
◈ Graduated 2014

list bulletWhy did I choose Philosophy: Unlike the other courses which actually leads to specific jobs and specializations, this course serves more of an eye-opener. It does not only help one master the craft of philosophizing, but it opens one's mind in order to improve skills such as critical thinking and analysis, and better judgment.

list bulletAbout my college education: It's a matter of perspective. I survived and excelled in my course not because I memorized all the theories and embraced all the teachings. Rather, I listened, analyzed, studied, and placed my opinion about the topics we tackled. Philosophy is not for everyone. It is boring for those who doesn't care about it. It is difficult and intimidating for those who do not love the discipline. But it is also very fulfilling and informative to those who are eager to learn and hone their skills.

list bulletMy current job: I am not employed. I am an incoming 1st year Juris Doctor student at Ateneo de Manila Law School.

list bulletDo I recommend studying Philosophy: If you are planning to take up Law in the future, then it is highly recommended to take up Philosophy. The skills and discipline you'll get from the course will help you in the study of law. All else (finances, job opportunities, etc) will follow once you pass the bar exam.

list bulletAdvice to people who are thinking of studying this course: Take a leap of faith, keep an open mind, and expand your horizon. Just be critical and diligent, and you'll be fine. You might actually enjoy it.
